Alumni Dinner and Distinguished Alumni Award

That evening, we will gather in the James West Alumni Center for a reception and dinner program, which will feature Cari Champion, the Daily Bruin Alumni Network's first Distinguished Alumni Award winner.

Champion is one of only a few African-American women anchoring shows at ESPN, and she has become a trailblazer in media. Described as a “game-changer” by Vogue in 2016, she was one of two women named to Sports Illustrated’s prestigious list of Six to Watch in 2016 and was recently included in the Ebony Power 100 of 2017 for representing women in an industry dominated by men.

Patrick Healy, an NBC4 Southern California reporter and Daily Bruin alumnus, will emcee the dinner.

The network will offer updates from the organizational leadership and fundraising committees and there will be plenty of time to enjoy dinner with friends, old and new.

Saturday activities

Join one of our meet-ups on Saturday, either to tailgate the UCLA football game in Pasadena or watch together in Westwood. Location specifics to come.

Please check out our Facebook event for updates about the reunion or to ask questions. The UCLA Alumni Association will send parking details and directions to all attendees in the days ahead of the event.
